Électra/Orestes | Bioscope Cinema

Jun 1 @ 3:00 pm

- R120
Électra-Orestes

As part of its Bioscope World Arts Cinema Season, the Fugard Theatre presents a screening of Électra/Orestes, filmed live at Comédie Française.

A description of the production reads as such:

“Upon his return from the Trojan War, Agamemnon is murdered by Clytemnestra, his wife, and Aegisthus, her lover. Seven years later, after a long exile, Orestes, Agamemnon’s son, returns to Argos. He and his sister, Electra, decide to avenge their father’s murder and dethrone the usurper who resigns at Clytemnestra’s side. The young woman urges her brother to take their revenge further by killing their mother…”

Ivo van Hove provides a new interpretation of this ancient Greek tragedy. Stating that all his projects are born from ‘love at first sight’ for a text, he combines two Euripides plays to tell the tale of a brother, Orestes, and a sister, Electra, who are reunited and join together in murder and revenge.
